How many OKRs should a team have?

team

When it comes to setting Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) for your team, it’s important to strike a balance between focus and complexity. While there is no hard and fast rule, a good guideline is to have around 3-5 Objectives with 4-6 Key Results for each Objective.

Remember, less is often more when it comes to OKRs. It’s better to have a few impactful OKRs that truly drive your business goals and strategy execution, rather than overwhelming your team with a long list of objectives.

For example, having 2 OKRs with 3 Key Results each can be more effective than having 6 OKRs with multiple Key Results. This allows your team to concentrate their efforts on a smaller number of goals, increasing the likelihood of successful execution and business performance management.

By keeping your OKRs concise and focused, you ensure that everyone understands the priorities and can align their efforts accordingly. This clarity of purpose will help drive the desired results and improve your overall strategy execution.

If you need assistance in developing and refining your OKRs, consider working with an OKR Coach or Consultant who can provide guidance and expertise in implementing the OKR framework effectively. They can help you streamline your OKR process, set smart objectives, and ensure that your goals are aligned with your business objectives.

Remember, the key is to measure what matters and set goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART). By following this goal-setting methodology and focusing on a few key objectives, you can enhance your strategy execution and drive business success.
